Liked: Staff & service
The place has a great deal of potential and I understand that the COVID pandemic has made much difficult... there is a need for power strips to connect lamp lights and charging ports that are available to some but not all. I hope that they can complete their renovations soon.

Connie Sugidancers Review
I had Rm. 206. When I stepped out of the room, I thought I had my keycard. But it was the bus card instead. There was no one at the front desk at 3:30 pm. Another gal with an issue called the room where the staff lives and takes breaks. So I had to wait about 10 mins until She showed up. While Checking in, They don’t take credit cards for the deposit. So they ask for $20 Cash. She did not give me a receipt. The Hallway had Construction material since they are remodeling the rooms. The Room’s dressers were only clean on top but extremely dusty on the sides. The Smoke Alarm was dangling on the ceiling. The caulking on the bath tiles were moldy and the moldy caulking fell onto my soap overnight. The Bed’s Head board was on the ground behind the bed. I told the staff about different issues and that my TV was not working. I did not know how to activate the channels. She said maintenance would come by but I could not wait for them and waste time when I wanted to go out. I figured how to tune into the channels by pressing The Cable H button. The TV Button on the Remote did not tune into the Channels. There was no instructions too how to turn on the TV. The Windows were dirty and old. The Radiator had no heat and covered by an ugly wooden cabinet. The bed was hard.The edges of the carpets were dirty and dusty. There was a closet but they did not provide hangers and I asked.There was no kleenex.The Walls are paper thin. I heard my neighbors talkin

Basic place just to crash for a night.Currently under renovation so it’s messy inside. It’s very cheap for SF but it’s just a basic place to sleep and not really that comfortable for relaxing. I slept in a shared room with 4 others.
